    Tried checking it for viruses nothing found. Tryed updating the driver, it says i have the best one for my CD ROM !!... tryed to disable the hardware and reinstall it using Windows Device Manager... it installed it alright ... as a cd-rom with the right driver that won't work !!..... Tryed visiting SONY Middle East and SONY Asia websites for support... SONY Middle East refused to acknowledge the laptop model even existed while SONY Asia had downloads for the Pioneer K16 but not for K17 !!!... Only thing i have'nt tryed yet is dumping the danged thing !

This sounds like you have a Virus or Some other type or Malware that has corrupted your drivers. Please Scan with Avast (http://www.avast.com/), Spybot S&D(http://www.safer-networking.org/), and Adaware (http://lavasoft.com/) all of witch have free versions.

Also it may be that your driver got corupted some othere way if it still does not work try roleing back your driver or updateing it.

Thank you,
Rel

P.s. if that does not work please come back and make sure you give the info that you have

scanned with the above and if you do not reply in this question then make sure you include all

that info with all the info you have already put here. Good Luck!

DVD-R, DVD-RW and DVD-RAM are supported by Panasonic, Toshiba, Apple Computer, Hitachi, NEC, Pioneer, Samsung and Sharp. These formats are also supported by the DVD Forum.

My Pioneer DVD-RW 109 ATA does not show in computer list with windows 7, any ideas


Do you mean that it doesn't show in the "My computer" section?

Did you install this yourself? Or did it come with the computer.

If you did it yourself, you may have to check that the cords are properly connected. Also, if you are adding it as an additional drive, you may have to enable the SATA connector it's connected through the BIOS. Like SATA-0 may be your HDD, SATA-1 may be your primary DVD Drive, and if it's an additional one SATA-2 might be that one.

Thanks,

My xp computer will not recognize the dvdrw. under hardware devices it shows the driver but with a yellow tab. the device is a liteon dvdrw 160p6s. liteon says in docs that it uses pnp service and not...


There are 2 types of dvd-rw discs, dvd+rw and dvd-rw. Some drives, especially older ones (since you are using XP) only support certain types. I run XP as well and many DVD+RW discs do not work for me. If this is the case, drivers arent your issue, its simply a hardware flaw. I would try experimenting with a different format, whether its + or - (plus or minus)

DVD RW is no working


This will generally always be down to a fault with the drive itself, as you are still under the 12 months guarantee I would contact Sony to repair the machine for you.

Dvd drive problem-sony vaio laptop


check in "device manager" for any hazard warning signs which indicate a problem with either the device or its driver's....to check, go to desktop, right click on "my computer" select properties, hardware tab, click "device manager" and check the list for those devices you mention. From here you can also troubleshoot and update driver if required.
